I can see where a robot might be needed like to go into a area where disease or radiation is a problem.  I wouldn't like see wars fought with them because then the thought of war would lose its meaning and started over little things.  We have already taken steps to use robots in war, its called a drone airplane.  I don't think it will stop there.  The scientists have to keep coming up with something new to keep the military interested.

Not to defend anything, but rather to point-out that weapon laden cruise missles have long been autonomous, utilizing military GPS and sophisticated terrain mapping imaging to be target directed.

Complex philisophical question for me.

But yes, they should be banned. In a case of war, killing someone by remote control seems unethical, much the same way that I find land mines unethical. It's emotionally easier to kill a terrorist and most of his family if the non-combatants are just pixels on a screen.

Surveillance use? Sure.

or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm!"

They should be killed. Preferably by other robots.
Then those robots should be killed.

Obama is already using robots to kill people abroad. The difference between a bleary-eyed operator sitting at a desk and pushing the button that makes a killer drone shoot a missile at what looks like a tent in Waziristan, and programming the drone to do that by itself is only a small one. Plus, an autonomous drone can not be kidnapped by e.g. Iran by interfering with the transmission link.

So yes, this will come. Say hello to the Terminator.

No one mentioned iRobot...
- robots shouldn't be given intelligence
- robots shouldn't have the power to destroy and kill

And stop all kind of war, plain and simple.
